Movie Info

One day Goreng wakes up with his future colleague Trimagasi in the 33rd level of a prison style place, crossed by a hole where a platform descends with meal remains left from the tenants from higher levels. Trimagasi knows the rules that govern this mysterious place: two people per level and an unknown number of them. If you go upwards you survive... but think too much and you will descend again. If you are in the bottom where the food barely arrives, you cannot trust anyone except your guts.

If you can stomach it, "The Platform" is a funny and fierce farce with its eyes on race, class and the ways people can rise up for the betterment of all by working together.

The notion is that, if each person took just enough to get by, there'd be plenty for everyone. But that's not always how people act. Have you tried buying toilet paper lately?

A gnarly mash-up of midnight movie and social commentary, the picture is overly overt but undeniably effective, delivering genre jolts and broad messaging in equal measure.

I was mostly nauseated by it... It was weird, dark, and I didn't love it.

Ultimately, The Platform might not have that much to say... but what it does say, it says effectively and ruthlessly, eschewing a tap on the shoulder for a punch in the face instead.

A film with multiple impressive twists given its limited setting, and each of them casts a new light on how the movie is supposed to reflect society.
